Oasis Local Charity Trustee

We are seeking new Trustees who can bring a range of skills and experiences that will help us to move closer to our vision of community – a place where everyone is included, making a contribution and reaching their God-given potential.

Joining one of our Local Boards you would become a trustee overseeing between one to four local Oasis Community Hub charities.

Founded in 1985, Oasis’ vision is for community – a place where everyone is included, making a contribution and reaching their God-given potential. We have developed a unique and successful Community Hub model, which brings everyone together to ensure people’s needs are met holistically. Our experience shows that integrated models involving local people, schools, professionals, statutory agencies, churches and other charities are vital in transforming lives and communities.

The Community Hub concept has been replicated across England and in other countries worldwide. Our work in the UK includes running over 20 local Community Hub charities. We don’t just do things for people, we work alongside them with the aim of helping everyone reach their full potential.

As a Trustee of one of our Local Boards, you will have responsibility for:

  • Critiquing and agreeing strategy
  • Income generation
  • Project oversight
  • Safeguarding the Oasis ethos and reputation

Our unique governance structure, means that you have additional support to ease the burden that can be associated with local trusteeship, freeing you up to focus specifically on those tasks outlined above.

We are looking for people who:

  • Are local to one of our Hub charities (Oldham, Salford, Bradford, Sheffield, Grimsby, Scunthorpe, Birmingham, Worcester, Southampton, Bristol, Croydon, North London, Waterloo)
  • Have a passion for community transformation and the vision of Oasis
  • Are able to ask challenging questions
  • Have time to attend four meetings year, with occasional extraordinary meetings when required.

We encourage diversity amongst our Trustees, and we would applications from a diverse range of people in the community.

We are committed to provide a training and support package to our Trustees.

Deadline for applications 19th July 2024.
